Bumper Week for Canada Lotto 6/49 Players

It looks like being a good week for Canada Lotto 6/49 players because lotto organizers Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation (OLG) have added ten extra jackpots.

This week, in addition to the normal jackpots for the on Wednesday and Saturday drawings, there will be five more $1 million jackpots up for grabs in each draw.

"What better way to reward our players than by offering extra $1 million prizes?" said Wendy Montgomery (OLG Vice President, Lottery Marketing & Sales). "With this many chances, someone is going to win. It could be you!"

Since its launch, in June 1982, Lotto 6/49 players have bagged over $10 billion in prizes. Drawings take place Wednesday and Saturday, shortly after the 21:00 (ET) ticket purchase cut-off time.
